"Having worked with the coaches from vision soccer training I have been extremely impressed. Not only do they possess the unique ability required to relate to children but they also demonstrate an extremely good knowledge base around the teaching of the technical and tactical aspects of the game."
Phil Roscoe Liverpool Football Club English Premier League
"Our experiences with clinics, Vision on a weekly basis with our team and multiple sessions at Futsal Factory have been nothing short of spectacular. We feel that their commitment to players, coaches and parents is what seperates Vision and Futsal Factory apart from other soccer training and trainers.
I highly recommend training with both Vision Soccer Training and Futsal Factory."
Justin Whitsell- Lincoln YSC
"My son has been training with Vision Soccer and Futsal Factory for 2 seasons now, and we have loved the training. Coach James offers a unique and high quality training program for all ages and levels of soccer players. We have done team Futsal training, outdoor team training, 1v1 training and my son also plays on the Futsal Academy team. His level of play, field awareness and touch on the ball has improved significantly with these extra training options."
Keegan Kirby, Fair Oaks YSC
"Vision Soccer Training does exactly what the name says. Soccer Training with a Vision. Long term player development while teaching the game the right way. Player get better playing the game. James K. and his staff know the game, all have played it, and are great with kids. Programs are offered year round, group or single. Vision also offers Futsal training which is hands-down, THE best foot skill development. Check them out!"
Coach Kevin Stringer, Roseville YSC
"We have used the training services of both Vision Soccer and Futsal Factory on and off for about a year. Coach James and Coach Gavin worked with the boys on our U14 competitive team and several other team (of various levels) in our club's competitive program. I have been very satisfied with their Futsal and outdoor soccer programs and impressed by both the training and the professionalism of the staff. We will continue to take advantage of their impactful training this winter and the boys are excited to start Futsal training again. I recommend both programs and thank you for offering excellent soccer training in the Sacramento area!"
